INTERNATIONAL SUMMER DANCE

PARALLEL COURSE OF THE CONTEST FOR DANCERS AND STUDENTS

An inspiring space for learning and professionalization with masters and figures of international dance.

For years, leading professionals from the world of dance and choreographic creation have been meeting at the International Summer Dance, an inspiring educational and pedagogical space that prologues the previous program of activities and proposals of the Certamen Burgos & New York and that has as its stable headquarters the Centro Hélade. 

Prominent dance figures such as Kazuko Hirabayashi, Takeiro Ueyama, Asunción Noales, Arantxa Sargadoy, Jill Eco, Lejato Amara Robinson, Maruxa Salas, Klevis Elmazaj, Amaury Lebrum, Christelle Horna or Lázaro Carreño, among many other professionals, have participated in this pioneering program that provides students with specific tools for choreographic composition, but also familiarizes young performers and talents of our country with techniques and working tools close to the poetics or languages of the most current movement arts.


Who is it aimed at?

The International Summer Dance is preferably aimed at young dancers and performers from Castilla y León and offers graduates and final year students of artistic education in the Community the opportunity to benefit from significant discounts.

This project has established itself as a benchmark in specialized training in dance and choreography in our country and has a strong practical character, since the works and proposals that arise within the framework of the classes are then taken to the stage during the opening gala of the competition. The program offers a total of 30 places, 15 for dancers from Castilla y León or 15 for performers from Europe and other parts of the national geography.


«We know that creativity and movement composition are areas that often need more attention in the training of future performers and choreographers. The careful selection of the contents that make up this program is key, since the choice of what we want to communicate to our young artists is transcendental. We rely on the experience of professionals who know firsthand how the stage imagination "breathes" around the world» Alberto Estébanez
